Sirigu sets Torino record

Salvatore Sirigu has set a new all-time club record with a sixth consecutive Serie A clean sheet in the Torino goal.

The record had stood since Luciano Castellini went 517 minutes unbeaten in the 1976-77 campaign.

Sirigu performed a smart save from close range on Filip Djordjevic against Chievo today to ensure he kept the clean sheet going, the game eventually ending 3-0 to Torino.

There is technically a longer run from Valero Bacigalupo in 1945-46, who did not concede for 690 minutes of football, but that was not a one-division league.

Sirigu spot-kick specialist

Torino goalkeeper Salvatore Sirigu has become a real spot-kick specialist, saving five of the last seven Serie A penalties he’s faced.

The veteran was on his toes again in today’s 1-0 win over Udinese, as he parried a Rodrigo De Paul penalty that would’ve equalised.

It’s not entirely a new experience, because Sirigu has now kept out five of the last seven Serie A spot-kicks that were taken against him.

The former Paris Saint-Germain goalie just turned 32 last month.

His death and that of Emiliano Mondonico took their toll on the Granata goalkeeper, as they were all together at the start of his career.

“It’s like a punch, one which wakes you up and at the same time puts you to sleep,” Sirigu told Corriere della Sera.
